Ecolution Power Company announced a partnership with Miller Electric Company to create a disaster recovery vehicle equipped with mobile electric charging capabilities for stranded electric cars and trucks.
A Letter of Intent (LOI) has been signed by both firms to finance the development of a prototype vehicle collaboratively. According to Ecolution, the vehicle will be able to charge its battery pack while in motion using the company’s proprietary Module Active Response System (MARS) technology. A pilot program for this innovative initiative is scheduled for launch in Florida in the third quarter of 2023.
“Florida, boasting over 90,000 EVs, predominantly in the southern half of the state, offers the ideal environment for launching this initiative,” Craig Bouchard Ecolution’s executive chairman, said. “During a Class-5 hurricane evacuation, the existing charging infrastructure would likely fail to support a mass evacuation. Our proposed solution could charge stranded vehicles around the clock, becoming a crucial resource in [these] situations.”
